Curacao celebrates King’s day on April 30

Willem Alexander 1WILLEMSTAD - Curacao celebrates the King's birthday on April 30 this year, not April 26, as in the Netherlands. The reason for this is the school vacation. This day was already designated as a holiday when it became known that the official King’s day would be April 27.

This year the Easter holiday starts on April 17 and lasts through all the extra days off until May 2. It would have been difficult not to keep April 30 as a holiday. King's day will be celebrated in the Netherlands a before the King’s birthday since it’s on a Sunday.
